More than a dozen states, including New York, Florida and California, are introducing legislation to allow for more private, virtual tourism.
The move comes after more than a year of debate about whether to let companies like Airbnb and TripAdvisor offer free rides or to charge hotels and other lodging services to visitors.
A handful of states have already gone this route, but none of the proposals would change the fact that hotels and motels would still be charged for lodging.
The bills have received little support from the industry, which argues that the current model has created a virtual tax that hurts businesses that rely on tourism.
But it’s unclear whether any of the proposed legislation will have a significant impact on the industry’s share of the industry.
Tourism advocates say the industry should be allowed to operate with more flexibility, like hotels and restaurants can.
But the issue is far from settled.
The Federal Trade Commission has been looking into the issue for months, and it has warned that hotels could be charged more than $100,000 a year for services like booking, security, and other services.
The Trump administration has made clear that it will keep a close eye on whether such a bill would actually pass.
